ago and this time. john mccain was very passive. let the president, candidate obama, do whatever he wants to do. mitt romney will not do that, and here's the strength tonight. >> here's the challenge. on the one hand, mitt romney has to connect. needs a second look. has had a rough couple of weeks. everyone acknowledged that. needs to be specific about what a romney presidency would mean. that's a lot to try to accomplish, isn't it? >> not really. we're not talking about really accomplishing a whole lot. he has two or three things in an hour and a half to accomplish. one of them is to show he's in command, in control, he understands the job of the presidency. he put barack obama on the defensive, or he should be, given his horrific record on the economy and on national security. i think he will do that. i think he will be tough with the president. i don't think the president will react particularly well to that because i don't think the president gets people who are very tough with him very often, and i think that interplay i think will be the key moment of the night. >> you see mor

debates under his belt. he's been practicing under senator john kerry. the president's goals are to keep his answers tight and be aggressive without overdoing it. a new poll in "the wall street journal" shows nearly 40% of registered voters say the upcoming debate are extremely or quite important to help them determine their vote. you can watch the debate tomorrow night at 6:00. >>> triple digits for the first week of fall. if you were outside or inside, you felt the heat. and the heat is still on tonight. san jose is in the 70s. san jose tied a record from 1986 with a high of 96. let's bring in jeff raineri. not only hot. but some of the hottest temperatures of the year. >> looks like it. as we headed throughout the day, not only of the season but of the past 12 months, this will rank in the top-five hottest days on the first full week of fall. gilroy 107. san francisco at a very sweltering 94. just two degrees away from setting a record in the city. not only interior valleys. but also at the coastline getting hot. that's how rare this heat event was. we're going to get 60s in san franc

in as the president. president obama has chosen john kerry to spar with. >> today president obama got an endorsement from an unlikely world leader. >> president obama did not ask for this endorsement is not going to comment on it. it's coming from venezuela president hugo chavez. the socialist leader known for anti-american rhetoric says he hopes mr. obama wins the presidential election. he called mr. obama "a good guy." his comments could be a sign that he's looking for a better diplomatic relations with the u.s., the top buyer of venezuela's oil. >>> in eastern afghanistan, the taliban launched a deadly attack on u.s. forces. a suicide bomber rammed a motorcycle packed with explosives into a joint u.s./afghan patrol killing 14 people including three americans. today's attack comes after a deadly weekend on american forces pushing the u.s. military death toll to over 2,000 since the start of the 11-year war. in recent months, many killings have been insider attacks. that prompted the u.s. military to suspend joint operations between u.s. and afghan forces but today most of those operations have res

politico, john harris and tim mack in reviewing your speech. the headline, christie delivers a primetime dud. they write, there's no mistaking what a successful keynote speech for chris christie would have looked and sounded like. there would have been an electric reaction from the crowd in the convention hall. it would have been followed by waves of effusive media commentary about how people had just heard the future of the republican party. there is no mistaking what the new jersey delivered instead. a primetime belly flop when he notably failed to clear either of those two high bars. are you still the future of this party, do you believe? >> well, mitt romney is the future of this party, first of all. he's going to be elected president on november 6. and then from there lead our country back to greatness. and believe me, if i took seriously judgment of my speeches by those two, i would not be in business for very long. >> governor chris christie, we'll leave it there. thank you as always. >> great to be with you, david. >>> let me now turn to the president's senior adviser david plouf

they haven't done anything else. >> reporter: civil rights attorney john burris says time's up for making mandated changes. he says opd has had a decade to make reforms. he plans to file a motion today requesting at least a partial federal takeover of the police department. >> maybe someone need to come in and tell them what they must do. and that is the approach that we think a receiver would do. he would give orders. >> i'm still confident by the end of the year we can avoid it. >> reporter: the mayor and chief they they believe the department is moving the right direction and will work to keep opd under local control. >> we don't know what form it will take. obviously i think that the chief's made progress. i don't want his work to be undermined. >> reporter: a federal hearing on this matter is scheduled for december 13. we understand the judge is expected to make a decision on the issue of receivership in december. again, the chief and the mayor believe that the department is on the right course, and they believe they still have time to prove that. reporting live in oakland, nbc bay a
to see the world from a bird's-eye view. john, good morning. good to see you. why birds? >> they're the most amazing creatures. they're emotional creatures, far more intelligent than we imagine, and the most amazing thing is they are able to traverse a continent. they see the world as we would like to see it, from the air. >> and so less exotic, less dangerous, certainly. but what an incredible view. >> it's an incredible view. and they're obviously difficult to film so i wanted to be sure we had the technology and way of filming them that could show how amazing these creatures are. >> let's talk about that. talk about the time and the effort and the creativity it took to capture some of these images. >> well, we were four years making this. and all of the time, the technology was catching up with our ambition. so we have many, many ways that we tried to fly or did fly with birds. we've had birds trained to fly alongside micro leitz. that in itself takes a year to achieve to get birds used to flying alongside micro lites. >> a micro lite being? >> an ultra lite you call it here.
